Desiring good English to Greek / Greek to English and English to Latin / Latin to English books

Can someone point me to a good, fairly comprehensive, English to Greek
dictionary?  And a good, fairly comprehensive, English to Latin
dictionary?  Ideally, the Greek one would need to tell me the word in
Greek, followed by the pronunciation in English-style lettering, that
is, transliterated into English.

I'm trying to create a language, actually languages, that would have
evolved from bits of Greek and bits of Latin, for an alternate universe
where the Greeks became starfarers.  Likely these languages won't be
direct descendants of same, but will have at least had to have had some
influence from them.

I came across one English to Greek, Greek to English book on
that had a review on it warning that it wasn't really that great for
translating stuff from English into Greek, because that particular book
was much more heavily weighted towards Greek to English...  :-/

Oh yeah, and what's the best beginners book on learning the art of
conlanging?  :-D
